Rasta S02E01 (Season 2 Episode 1) is a newly opened Pub & Coffee shop in HRBR Layout and outlet of Rasta café on Mysore Road. I was invited for a Food Bloggers Association, Bangalore (NPO) community meet up along with few fellow food enthusiasts. A special menu was set with all signature Veg & Non Veg dishes.
I was overwhelmed with the sight as soon as I entered. They have a coffee shop on the ground floor with Indoor & outdoor seating facility. Especially outdoor seating is just amazing along the side of a beautiful lawn. Second floor is completely steadfast for Pub with Generous place with decent interiors and comfortable seating. However, some of the corners are shadowy.

We were around 12 people, so we booked the table well in Advance. There was no much crowd although it was Sunday.

I have visited Rasta Café, Mysore Road at least Ten to Fifteen times so I had a positive impression about this place, as the same management is taking care of this and Rasta S02E01 did not disappoint me at all. It was up to my perception & Amenity. I was totally impressed with the vegetarian menu which includes some innovative dishes.
Dishes which are served were not part of regular menu and it was exclusive. We got an opportunity to try those.
Here are the dishes which were served during the meet up

1.Zucchini Fritters: These were grilled and slightly spiced with tiny chunks of Zucchini making it palatable. But in this dish I noticed egg odor although it was not used while preparing the dish.

2.Veg Rissole – One of the must try dishes in Rasta and it looks similar to Calzone Pockets. Vegetables in melted cheese wrapped within a crispy thick layer. It just melted in my mouth and ended up ordering one more!

3.Spaghetti Pesto Pasta – This dish was served for main course. I don’t like any pasta except white sauce and Spaghetti I always say “no”. There was no other option so decided to try out this dish. Well, they neither used red or pink sauce for this pasta; they used sun dried tomato powder and well sauté mushrooms. It was perfect with aroma of Olive oil and Parmesan. I love to try this again!

4.Caramel Fruit Cup: Fresh Fruits carved nicely and placed in cup which made with caramel. Should eat by breaking it with fruits. I find this something innovative!

5.Belgium Chocolate Brownie: I am not a dessert lover but some of my fellow foodie friends advised to try once, yes it was superb and I was impressed. Made with lot of walnuts and tastes yumm!

We tried Some Mocktails & Sangria as well. Sangria was something different compare to the other places I tried and it was ok. Prices are quite inexpensive on both food & beverages.
